"If you were an animal, wild or tame, would you know your daddy's name?" Every page answers this question with a different animal. Children will be delightfully surprised by the animal in the middle of the book, and dads will appreciate the scene on the last page. Rhyming verses describe animal characteristics, and watercolor illustrations capture the feel of the different habitats. Additional animal information and a matching game (here and in the back of the book) extends the learning.
